IEEE ComSoc Announces Spring 2015 Communications Training Schedule

New Program Promotes Real-world Expertise in Wireless, VoLTE & RCS, LTE-Advanced, M2M, Satellite, Software-Defined Networking & Broadband Mobile Satellite Communications

New York, NY, March 12, 2015 --( The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the leading professional organization dedicated to the advance of communications technologies worldwide, has introduced its Spring 2015 training schedule dedicated to enhancing the real-world skills of global industry professionals. The ongoing program, offering both online and in-person learning experiences, highlights the latest fundamental details and advanced applications in key technologies such as LTE-advanced, self-organizing networks (SON), wireless, small cells, Voice over LTE (VoLTE) & Rich Communication Services (RCS), broadband mobile satellite, machine-to-machine (M2M) and software defined networking communications.

“IEEE ComSoc Training is committed to elevating the expertise of communications experts based throughout the world,” says IEEE WCET® Program Director Rulei Ting. “Each offering undergoes a thorough evaluation process, where we strive for new levels of excellence as well as providing a testing forum and learning curriculum designed solely to enhance the skills of everyone that participates. This includes achieving a world-class standard in wireless proficiency offered through the IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET) Certification Program – a recognition perceived throughout the international wireless communications industry as a symbol of excellence.”

In addition to the many educational advantages supplied by the IEEE ComSoc Training schedule, the 5 Day Intensive Wireless Training Course was developed to increase the in-field knowledge of each registrant and provide a comprehensive overview of IEEE WCET test material. This course is also offered individually or as a two-for-one package that reduces pricing for individuals enrolling in both the 5 Day course and the Spring 2015 IEEE WCET exam. The next IEEE WCET testing cycle will be held from 12 April – 9 May 2015 with the registration deadline set at 27 March 2015. Additional details on the two-for-one testing and 5-Day course package is available at

The IEEE WCET exam is offered twice annually to practicing wireless communications professionals with the equivalent of a college or university degree and three or more years of professional experience. Constructed by international subject matter experts, the test was prepared to assess the skills and knowledge of candidates in the areas of RF engineering, propagation and antennas; access technologies; network and service architecture; network management and security; facilities infrastructure; agreements, standards, policies and regulations; and fundamental knowledge.

Most recently, IEEE ComSoc Training partnered with Professional Examination Service, a leader in credentialing services, and Pearson VUE, a leading expert in computer-based-testing, to expand the IEEE WCET exam to more than 30 additional countries based throughout North, Central & South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific. Other updates include the availability of a new 2015 IEEE WCET Candidate Handbook detailing policies, topics, reference sources, sample questions and application procedures.

Professionals interested in advancing their expertise through the IEEE WCET Certification Program or IEEE ComSoc Training are invited to visit the organization’s newly updated websites at and or contact Marilyn Catis at Upcoming Spring 2015 training sessions include sessions dedicated to:

--5 Day Intensive Wireless Communications Engineering Intermediate Fundamentals Review & Current Practices and a review of IEEE WCET disciplines including RF engineering, propagation and antennas; access technologies; network and service architecture; network management and security; facilities infrastructure; agreements, standards, policies and regulations; and fundamental knowledge (Offered online 23 – 27 March)
